Awwaaaa… Boyd-Bear has tight hip after all his lying around! So he decided to mobilize.
Nahh.. I forced him to pose for that pic after he insisted on tickle torturing me with his floppy ears while I was foam rolling.
I ran a nice 25 minute 5k with Pippa this morning, and I was feeling feisty so I decided to run the hill by my house a few times.
Nothing too crazy, but it ended up being 2 miles.
Later this afternoon, I went to CrossFit… ahhh!! I didn’t know anyone in the random 3PM class. We spent some time building up to our 1-rep max for front squats — I’m still at 145, but happy with that! I actually did a “pretty” one at that weight today, so I’ll take it. Next time I want to go over 150.
And then we did this little wod:
- Thrusters @ 65lbs
- Double unders
I finished in 6:51. Those first 21 thrusters were hard. It didn’t help that I had just done a bunch reps practicing with 75lbs before I decided to back down. So I was one of the last people ready to start and still a little out of breath. Oops!!! I think it was a good time, and I was happy because I didn’t have to modify any of the movements!!!
You know what else makes me happy? FREE STUFF!!!!!!!!!!! I won $100 of free Reebok by doing a review on a tank top I bought a few months ago — it was drawing. I’m so lucky!! Lol.
LOOK AT ALL THOSE BEAUTIFUL SOCKS!! I wonder how long before Boyd eats one.
The tops I was not a fan of, unfortunately. I’ve found the Reebok shirts to be super unflattering on me. The top is too loose on top but still manages to create some bumps around my midsection. And they’re just too long. The striped one is as long as my shorts! Pass. I love the Reebok CrossFit shorts and I LOVE the crops (more than Lulu even!!!!!), but the tops are cramping my style.
Dinner tonight was at Park Burger! So delicious!! I’ve been avoiding going there lately because it get soooooo busy, but apparently Tuesday night is the time to go!
And now we are watching this very important movie that I got from the library. Did you know I’m a huge Jackie Chan fan???? I really am. I’ve been wanting to see this since it came out… in 2010.
The dangerous nature of his stunts makes it difficult for Chan to get insurance, especially in the United States, where his stunt work is contractually limited. Chan holds the Guinness World Record for “Most Stunts by a Living Actor”, which emphasizes “no insurance company will underwrite Chan’s productions in which he performs all his own stunts”. In addition, he holds an unrecognised record for the most number of takes for a single shot in a film, having shot over 2900 retakes for a complex scene involving a Jianzi game in Dragon Lord.
And he can do handstand push-ups! He’d be great at CrossFit!
What’s your favorite action movie/actor? I think I’ll have to check the library for some more Jackie Chan classics.
